, obama's numbers went right back up today when people saw the unemployment drop. i find this interesting. in fact, jimmy has said obama regained everything he lost during the debate. what's your thought about that? it says these numbers are helping him. >> well, i think that's right. he's been saying on the campaign trail give me four more years and i'll really get this economy in gear and now he can point to something that justifies that message. the key is you already see voters in polls saying they think the economy is getting better. here this number advances that argument. it's a big boost. what you didn't hear romney say today is what he's been saying for years, that the unemployment rate is above 8% for 44 months. that talking point is done. it's over and it's going to be a little hard for him to make that economic case. >> let me say something about this, though. i looked back at the data four years ago, exactly four years ago -- i'm sorry, eight years ago. the democrats ran against the bush economy. do you know what the unemployment rate was in october of 2004? it was 5.5%. ther

can only assume is a confession. let's get right to, it. we know this is a deeply divided nation, until last night when something brought all americans together in agreement. >> president obama took a shell acting. >> he was not properly prepared for this. >> the president didn't bring his a game. >> he was just so dull. >> he looked tired to me. >> romney won hands down. >> he was very, very bad last night. >> jon: there is no red america there is no blue america there is only the america that can't believe how bad this guy did in the debate. how bad was the defeat o bama lost despite mitt romney doing this. >> i'm sorry, i will stop the sub sid to pgs. i like big board, i like few, but i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> jon: mother [bleep] fired big board. america's favorite nonfried bird. he fired big board and won. beloved children's character. romney could have water boarded aladdin, put down blue, deported dora the explorer. and still won walking away. romney won with the sound up. >> your title of the president of

. >> would you think that barack obama would bring that up. >> jon: with you would think. >> right, to engage the 47% who don't want to be called slackers but who are. >> jon: not tone rage them, but to mobilize them. >> -- oh, i didn't see -- >> some of them are here tonight. >> jon: no but he didn't -- >> his strongest suit, we kept waiting, okay, what he is going hit him with. >> jon: do you think was strategy or do you think, it was a kind of a prevent defense kind of a thing that you thought he was doing or he really felt like he just didn't want to deal with that guy. will just make his case. >> i think mr. obama is so far ahead that he wanted to tighten up just to be exciting. just to create a little bit. >> jon: that's a very generous interpretation of that. >> he is so far out, it's like you know, you're in the third quarter, up by five touchdowns, just let them catch up and then we'll bang them. you. >> jon: you don't want to appear in any way greedy with your lead. you want to give a little back. so basically he's redistributing his lead. >> uh-huh, that's right. that's what

obama in virginia now making campaign stops there and in ohio, right now, getting ready for a rally in fairfax, virginia. later he'll head to cleveland, ohio, where he'll speak to the students at cleveland state university and in doubt talking about those new jobs numbers. and trying to rebound from his flat debate performance on wednesday night. >>> this morning, we learn the jobless rate is at its lowest level since president obama first took office. the new rate 7.8%, that's a bigger than expected drop from 8.1% in august. 114,000 new jobs were added last month, those new jobs numbers out today seem to be pretty good news for president obama. but it is his opponents who greating to t in getting to the microphone first to call foul. joining me now, john breabander. welcome to both of you. >> good morning, carol. >> nice to see you too. the jobs report was not great. only 114,000 jobs added to the economy. you had that psychological boost of the unemployment rate going down to 7.8%. is the obama camp doing the happy dance? >> well, they're not doing a happy dance, carol, because th

out of this debate? >> i think you're going to see the polls close in virginia. i think right now president obama has a very narrow advantage, largely because of the gender gap that exists but i think it's going to close to less than five points if it's not there already. ohio is the big story here as you know. that's the challenge for governor romney. it's pulling. >> a closer place in ohio. it seems unlikely -- i talked to some senior romney campaign folks about this. it's very unlikely he will ever pull out of ohio. they have the money, the outside groups have lots of money. he's never going to leave ohio 37 but, it seems very difficult for him right now to get closer in that state. if you don't win ohio, as you know, andrea, you've got to win wisconsin, iowa, and keep those western states. it's a very narrow path if you don't have ohio. and right now, romney is down there by at least five points or so. >> jonathan martin, thank you so much. good to see you. >> thank you, andrea. >> up next, former bush speechwriter michael gerson on the new mitt romney and send me your thought

there at the end. and headed in the right direction if you're president obama's campaign politically, but what about inside the numbers economically. let's bring in our panel, steve hays weekly standard. charles lane, washington post and syndicated columnist, charles krauthammer. charles? >> well, the numbers are tricky because when you get a drop in the rate and then you get this anemic job-- anemic increase in the numbers of jobs, they contradict each other. the reason that you can these contradictions, each of them comes from a completely different survey. the anemic rise in new jobs comes from the survey of employers and it's a huge and vast survey. where one out of every three employers is collected. whereas the unemployment rate comes from the survey of households where it's only 6/10 of 1% of 1% of all households are being surveyed. so, you've got a very small sample. it doesn't mean that one is right and the other is wrong, but it could mean that the second one where you have this very small one you could have huge fluctuation. we don't know which is right except for one thin

and the concomitant belief that if obama care goes right out the window when day one of the new presidency, it's good for big pharma and for health maintenance organizations. to which i say sorry. that is very wrong. in truth, big pharma and the hmos have been gigantic winners off obamacare. they made their peace with it. they profited from it. some would say they co-opted it. that's why i warned on twitter not to get too caught up in the benefits of a possible obama care repeal. it may not be as bountiful as you wish them to be. you may have to sell the stocks that people bought today. obamacare is so fabulous for big pharma and health care. sorry. finally, i tweeted one last epiphany at the conclusion. under no circumstances regardless who wins should you buy hewlett-packard. the bottom line on the debate, you can speculate on romney win after last night and adjust your portfolio accordingly. if you buy stocks with declining fundamentals simply because you think they'll get a boost from romney or obama, you're taking on an unacceptable level of risk. buy good stocks cheaply. a

they make them last night. i think gloria is exactly right. this is -- obama has had a very good campaign. he's got a very good team supporting him. but there is a tendency here for the president to sit on his lead. i think we saw that at the democratic convention. you know, the clinton speech was the highlight of that convention, not the obama speech. and here he came into this, i think he sat on his lead last night and what you learn in this game is the other guy and by the way, i disagree with gloria on one thing. i think this was a new mitt romney we saw last night. one we haven't seen before. i don't think he was ever as effective in a primary debate as he was this time. he was head and shoulders above his performances in the past. >> he was a new mitt romney in a different way. i will say, he was as aggressive as he was in those primary debates when he needed to be. 's a good performer unde pressure. but i do think the obama campaign has a point when they say this is a different mitt romney who is not the tea party mitt romney. this was somebody who said there is a role for
